Serve it for breakfast or dinner, french toast is a classic that remains a favorite.
French toast is a Sunday brunch staple in our home. Recently, with the change of the clock, it has become a motzei Shabbos supper. Leftover challah is always a bonus, but any sliced bread will do.
A good idea is to buy sliced challah specifically for this purpose. I like to keep a bag in my freezer and take out a few slices as needed.
- Approx 6 slices of challah (or any sliced bread)
- 4 eggs
- ¼ cup milk
- Dash of salt
- Dash of cinnamon, optional
- 1-2 tablespoons oil for frying
- Place the eggs in a bowl or pan. Add the milk and the salt. Whisk until combined.
- Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Add the oil to the hot frying pan.
- Dredge the bread into the mixture until there is no visible dry bread. Fry until golden on both sides. Serve right away.
My family likes to eat their French toast with maple syrup or a dusting of confectioner’s sugar. What do you like on top?
I grew up with a savory version which people always raise their eyebrows at and then fall in love with- skip the cinnamon and top with a slice of american cheese as soon as you flip to the 2nd side. Will melt as it continues cooking. Some of my kids then like to dip it in sweet chili sauce. Or those that like it sweet, skip the cheese and spread raspberry jam on top.
We always topped it with lots of white sugar and ate it like that until, the husband came around and made it with the American cheese on top as soon as it got flipped to the second side . At first I was like No it doesn’t come like that! But I have been eating the cheese version 7 years!
We eat it with chunky cottage cheese!
We either eat it with white sugar or with melted American cheese
We love it with cinnamon and sugar! Yum! Just as a side note, an electric griddle is amazing for french toast! You can make about 8 slices at once! Amazing time saver!
i also grew up with melted cheese on top! its really good!! but my husband thinks its so weird!
Best tip I ever read somewhere was to put vanilla extract in the egg mixture. It doesn’t really add taste but smells AMAZING while it’s frying.
Raspberry jam! I have been served French toast topped with shredded mozzarella. It wasn’t bad.
I don’t like sugary sweet breakfast so I created a spicy version of french toast that is absolutely amazing!!
Spicy French Toast:
1/4 cup Milk
sprinkle of water
crushed red pepper flakes
a bit of garlic powder and dried onion flakes. (optional)
(for a twist- mix in some shredded cheese into the mixture)
I hope you enjoy 😉

Try adding almond extract to the egg mixture. It’s delicious!
how about fresh, hot french toast with cold sour cream?
